Cow Elk pics

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Keith, Jul 28, 2005.

  1. These were spotted on the way to Maligne lake in Jasper, actually there is elk everywhere, did not see any BIG bulls except for in our parking lot at our hotel there :roll: and on the way home. Sure I have a pic or two of 380 size bulls...........the bulls are running all by there lonesome selves until first week of September or so as they start building their harems through the rut which usually peeks the first full moon. This I am looking forward to trying to photograph and will be prepared! These taken with 70-200mm VR + 1.4tc handheld early evening.......
